RSPCA pays tribute to Paul O'Grady
The RSPCA is today paying tribute to animal lover and TV legend Paul O'Grady following his sad passing.
Chris Sherwood, chief executive of the RSPCA, said:
Paul O'Grady's love for animals and the incredible way he told their stories inspired countless families to re-home rescue pets and give them a second chance at happiness.
His tireless campaigning saw Paul recognised with an RSPCA Animal Hero Award for his outstanding contribution to animal welfare, while he once adopted a little lamb Winston from us who had been rescued from a wheelie bin.
The thoughts of all at the RSPCA are with his loved ones and our friends at Battersea at this difficult and sad time.
